Did anyone else think that Youkilis hand was broken when he was hit by the Hochevar fastball? After the "Sh*t...F**k...Sh*t", I was waiting for the cameras to zoom onto a golf-ball sized welt on Youkilis' arm. Instead, Youk gets up, makes a fist and walks to first base. Sure, he may be out for a couple of games, but for the second time in 12 months, I'm relieved that we will not be losing Youk for an extended period of time.
Last year, I had the exact same feeling when Chien-Ming Wang hit Youk with a fastball in September. I saw the play, heard the "pop" and immediately turned to my friends and set, "That's it....it's broken...he's done for the year".
Is it me or is it Youk?
